Violin Memory appoints new CEO

Kevin A. DeNuccio to drive enterprise transition to flash-based storage

Violin Memory has named industry veteran Kevin A. DeNuccio new company president and chief executive, effective immediately.

DeNuccio, 54, succeeds Howard A. Bain III, who was serving as interim chief executive. Bain will remain chair of the board.

Denuccio brings 25 years of industry experience and most recently managed Wild West Capital LLC, an angel investing, management and technology consulting firm he co-founded in 2012.

From 2010 to 2012, he served as the chief executive of Metaswitch Networks, a London-based, privately held provider of IP and telecommunications software, where he led the company’s global expansion, refreshed its product portfolio and oversaw two acquisitions, according to a company statement.

Prior to Metaswitch, Mr. DeNuccio served as President and CEO of Redback Networks, a publicly-traded provider of edge routers that was acquired by Ericsson for $2.1 billion.

During his tenure, he led a financial restructuring and major turnaround that took the company from significant losses in 2001 to achieving profitability and expanding its market capitalization nearly fourfold.

Additionally, he has held executive positions with Bell Atlantic Network Integration, Cisco Systems and Unisys Corporation.

Bain said DeNuccio had an outstanding track record within the technology industry of achieving profitable growth and creating significant value.

“His experience transforming businesses by developing deep client and channel relationships, rapidly scaling operations and cultivating talent will be invaluable to Violin as we focus on building a strong future for all our stakeholders,” he said.

DeNuccio said he was looking forward to driving the enterprise transition to a flash-based storage infrastructure.

“With market-leading products and technology, great customers and growing partnerships, Violin has a strong foundation in place and I am confident in our ability to create significant shareholder value.”

DeNuccio currently serves on the boards of SanDisk Corporation (NASDAQ:SNDK), Calix, Inc.(NYSE:CALX), Metaswitch Networks and Northeastern University.
